Treatment, The: This Might Hurt

Classic Hard Rock
4.5/5.0

Could we be experiencing the rise of a new generation? And should we call them the Red Bull generation? You might think so listening to The Treatment's debut This Might Hurt. These boys from Cambridge UK definitely know where they can find the popular Austrian beverage. What energy.

The story behind this band is even more interesting, knowing that most members are still teenagers.

But that has not stopped them from recording 12 outstanding hard rock tracks that sound as if they have been around as long as Angus Young and his Australian compatriots. Their music is an extremely pure reincarnation of the hard rock of the seventies and eighties done by bands such as Def Leppard, Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin.

The album opens with Departed, an amazing up-tempo rocker where the guitars seem to come from everywhere. The next two are equally punchy and it's only when track number four, Just Tell Me Why, comes along before we have time to breath again. With Nothing To Loose one more mid tempo track is on the list, the remainder is simply good old pedal to the metal. Helped by a simple but effective in your face production this is not a record that you should be writing too much about. Just put in the CD player and listen, I'll be surprised if you can keep your head still.

Do you like AC/DC, Bullet and Tesla? And would you like to experience that exciting feeling again when Def Leppard hit the scene in 1980? Give this one a go, you cannot go wrong. According to the press release the band members are probably not old enough to buy alcohol. If they keep reaching for the Red Bull instead we should not be complaining.

Bay Area band Space Vacation takes me back to the "golden era" of traditional heavy metal, where it all began. It was the glory days of tape trading, mimeograph fan-zines, and cut off denim jackets ... [ Read More ]
